A new Star Wars comic book due out in May of this year depicts Jedi Master Luke Skywalker wielding a lightsaber. Big deal, right? Expect it’s not blue or green, it’s yellow. The comic is set after The Empire Strikes Back.
Star Wars #6 from Charles Soule and drawn by artist Jesús Saiz, sees Master Skywalker return to where he first dueled his father in Cloud City on Bespin. He has come in search of the blue lightsaber that was lost when his hand was cut off during the duel.
